Solskjaer admits he ‘can’t do anything about Alexis Sanchez’ as Manchester United No.7 struggles – again

Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has openly admitted he is unable to help Alexis Sanchez regain his form following his sides Champions League defeat to PSG. 

The Chilean forward came off the bench seconds before half-time in place of the injured Jesse Lingard, but was unable to make much of an impact during the side’s 2-0 loss to the Parisian club at Old Trafford.

Manchester United were undone by second-half goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappé, both of which were assisted by former Red Devils winger Angel Di Maria, for the club’s first loss under Solskjaer since he took over in December.

The home side never looked like breaking through, with Alexis Sanchez incapable of creating chances for himself or his teammates in what was another disappointing performance from the former Arsenal attacker.

Following the full-time whistle, the Norwegian said it was up to Sanchez himself to figure out how to regain the kind of scintillating form that convinced United to pay him £391,000 a week.  

“I can’t do anything about Alexis Sanchez, when he plays, he needs to find himself, because we know there is a quality player there,” Solskjaer said in his post match press conference.

The Red Devils face Paris St. Germain in the return leg at the the Parc des Princes next month aiming to become the first ever side to overcome a 2-0 home defeat in the first leg of a Champions League knockout tie.
